(Best Syndication News) For the first time in two years, the Microsoft Xbox 360 is outselling the competitors. While sales of Sony PlayStation 3 were thirty percent higher last month, the console was still in third place behind Xbox and the Wii. Supply of the PS3 remains “constrained”.

The NPD Group says found that food sales and apparel sales remain steady over the past few months but sales of video games have skyrocketed. The Wii has helped bring this about. Interestingly just six months ago Xbox was considered the most unreliable video game console on the market. It had a failure rate eight times the Wii and twice the PS3. Today the Xbox is number one again.
